As a business owner of either a large or small business, you should always install a commercial fire alarm system as soon as you move into a new building, or possibly upgrade an existing system. There are several different types of commercial fire alarm systems available, and you’ll want to make sure you choose a system that best fits your space.

For small businesses that occupy small buildings, such as a small freestanding store or a retail office space in a larger complex, you’ll want to make sure your commercial fire alarm system covers every inch of your cozy business space. Call a professional to measure your space, number of rooms or offices, and determine how many fire alarms you’ll need, as well as any potential fire risks in your business. For instance, if you own a small retail clothing shop, you’ll want to make sure that your fire alarm system protects all of your expensive merchandise and is able to warn you the minute that there is smoke or fire present.

With a commercial fire alarm system, you’ll normally have access to a 24 hour monitoring service. Your fire alarm company will contact you if any alarms go off when you’re not present in your business, on vacation or during after hours.

For large businesses that are looking for the best type of commercial fire alarm system, contact a professional company that specializes in installation, testing, identifying risks and has a monitoring service as well. The larger your business is, the more complex your fire alarm system will be. For instance, if you have a large office space with several rooms, cubicles, bathrooms and space for all of your employees, you’ll want to make sure your fire alarm system is top of the line. Keep not only your business safe, but also your employees.

Make sure a professional is able to train your staff on the proper way to respond to a fire alarm, as well as the best way to identify where the alarm is coming from, how to notify the rest of the employees in the building, and how to notify the fire department in the case of a false alarm.

Sometimes, it’s possible to integrate your commercial fire alarm system with a security system as well. This can sometimes give you the most bang for your buck  – the better you can protect your investment from damage, the better off you’ll be in the long run.

Choose The Right And The Best Commercial Fire Alarm System Company

Some companies will offer fire alarm inspections without the license to back up their credibility. When you are hiring a commercial fire alarm system company to perform your testing, check with the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) to make sure they have the necessary credentials and certifications to perform these inspections. 1st Alarm Fire  is a licensed company with the certified technicians you will need to perform your inspections. They will work with you to schedule the testing when it is convenient for your business and make sure your system stays at its top-performance.

When you work with the right company, you will be assured of providing a safer work environment for your employees and customers. Keeping up-to-date with your inspections through a reputable company will get you a better resale value should you consider selling. Another benefit from working with the right company may lower your insurance premiums and prevent any fire code violations as their work is guaranteed.
